gnome calculator can't seal with complex numbers
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem: The calculator in FC5; gcalctool, galculator or
gdeskcal, whatever it's called... Can not handle complex numbers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to calculate sqrt(-9) or (1+i)*(2-2i)...
It is impossible to even type complex numbers in the calc.
3i and 4 respectively
The calculator uses the incorrect "inverted sine", "inverted cosine" when it
actually means "arcus sinus" and "arcus cosinus"... But that's another story.
galculator is Fedora Extras package which doesn't support complex numbers. But
this is not a place to report such enhancement request, please report it
gcalctool is a completely different calculator package which is a part of
standard Gnome installation.
The bugs are reported to galculator.sourceforge.net. We can close this bug
